aging forward crew? gomez and gionta are the only major players over 30. well, and cole, but he's an addition. gomez is going to be better, too. yeah, i wouldn't bet against montreal this year, i don't think. i think they have a good shot at unseating boston and beating out buffalo.
If Ruff can get Buffalo gelled quick I feel they may take the division. A strong defensive coach, with a much improved defense along with Miller could be hell for teams all season. I have a hard time seeing Montreal pass Boston. All three teams have elite goaltending so it's hard to say.
